The problem with getting adventurous is that often, it makes coming home at the end of a long night out very difficult. The subway's no longer running, the busses and streetcars are infrequent, and cabs are just so expensive. But, you still definitely don't want to miss out on some of those great bars in other parts of the city. So, on a night when you know how you're getting home, hit up one of these great spots.

Parts and Labour
1566 Queen St. W
A sick beer selection and a room downstairs where you can dance till you drop makes it all worth it, even if this bar is basically in Roncesvalles.

1279 Queen St. W
Aside from the wide variety of music acts that come here, this is also where Big Primpin', a fantastic gay club night where you will dance all your sorrows away, is hosted once a month. Despite it being all the way out in Parkdale, it still attracts quite a crowd.

The Hole in the Wall
2867 Dundas St. W
The Hole in the Wall has a great vibe, a great beer selection, and great live music every night. Completely worth the trip to the Junction.
3030 Dundas St. W
Another fantastic Junction spot, 3030 has a great layout and excellent in-house music. Plus, there's no way you'll forget the address.
1216 Queen St. E
A great bar for any cocktail connoisseur, Hitch has an impressive selection of mixed drinks. Maybe it's time for a trip to Leslieville.
What Are You Looking At
996 Queen St. E
Not only does WAYLA have fun drink choices and a cool vibe, the music is decidedly 90s, reminding you of a simpler time when you were young and crimping was still cool.
1241 Bloor St. W
Holy Oak has a chill atmosphere when the live music is more low-tempo, but can just as easily be bumpin' when they're hosting a dance party. Either way, you're guaranteed a fun night.

The Fox and Fiddle (York Mills location)
865 York Mills Rd.
The staff up here are some of the friendliest you'll meet, so it's definitely worth the journey up to North York
193 Danforth Ave.
This place has a great back patio, and a great vibe. And if you don't end up making it home from the Danforth, they make a mean lunch too.
The Monk's Table
1278 Yonge St.
If you have a passion for European beers, this is the place for you. Definitely worth checking out next time you're in Midtown.
587 Yonge St.
Craft beer, craft beer, and more craft beer. A great place to check out if you're looking for something to do in Church and Wellsely.
894 Queen St. E
The Roy Public House is where to go when you're looking for a traditinal bar with an excellent beer selection, and great food to compliment it. Leslieville is awesome, yo.
